Bright, funky and colourful, Bella Italia Hempstead Valley is a bustling eatery that's perfect for the whole family. Alongside the great selection of Mediterranean recipes, there are fun additions like vintage Vespa scooters, a rustic gelato cart filled with irresistible flavours, and a large al fresco seating area to make the most of any good weather.

With authentic Italian ingredients sourced from real Italian-family producers, the Bella Italia menu is filled with dishes to suit every appetite. Enjoy a delicious pizza, hand-stretched for a thin & crispy base, or one of their many pasta dishes, with fresh pasta produced by the Gaetarelli family near Lake Garda, and lasagne made in-house every day to a traditional Italian family recipe. The menu also features a selection of fresh salads, tasty Italian classics & family favourites from the grill.

Enjoy a complementing glass from Bella Italia’s extensive wine list, or celebrate something special with a glass of Prosecco or a signature Italian cocktail, like the classic Aperol Spritz. Kids can also enjoy a tasty Italian feast from the kids menu at Bella Italia restaurant in Hampstead, with a trip to the gelato cart offering the perfect ending to any meal.

    The restaurant was clean and the lights were unusual but could have been a little dimmer. My dinner was nice although one of my friends said hers was not very hot. Polite, helpful staff.

    Far too long a wait for service drinks were left on the bar that we had ordered for over 20 mins food was cold when received .... real shame as waitress was nice and you could see working hard but just not enough staff for a sat night

    The waitress was rushed of her feet but gave a service way beyond what I would have expected under those circumstances . She was cheerful , polite and very helpful . Unfortunately the dish my cousin ordered for her birthday treat had to be adjusted due to something having been not available which did spoil the quality of the food , however the staff did everything they could and therefore we did have a lovely evening .

    Everything great except felt price of soft drinks, eg lemonade and diet coke which cost £3.39 for a pint. I can buy a litre for less than £1! Service charge was a bit much!!!

    Thoroughly enjoyed my meal and first time at Bella Italia. Food was very good indeed. I had the pasta dish called Marco Polo which was duck and spring onion with pasta tubes in a plum sauce. The lady who waited our table was friendly and helpful and very bubbly! Will definitely be dining there again!

    Good meeting place and we were served by Sophie who was a delight. Great to be able to book on line, so convenient. Service was a little slow, and the place wasn't full, but Sophie kept us updated and as we were chatting, we didn't mind. Disappointed to learn that , when I asked about the soup ingredients as I have a mushroom allergy that they would have to read the packet!
